    Imagine you wanted to write fanfiction about Star Wars Episode 12. Then you publish the fanfiction and title it Star Wars Episode 12: The Fanfiction, based on a poem someone else wrote. Imagine the comments, the potential backlash toward someone riding the coattails off a bigger epic with this choice in title. Now consider that Ananda Coomaraswamy first published his seminal "The Dance of Siva" in 1918. Imagine you wanted to write fanfiction about Star Wars Episode 12.
